Mental health services

At West Valley Medical Center, behavioral health treatments are always provided in a safe, secure and confidential setting. All of our behavioral health patients have access to all of the medical specialists and diagnostic technologies of our acute-care hospital. To meet the needs of the Caldwell, ID community, we offer both inpatient and outpatient behavioral health services.

The mental health and wellness program at West Valley Medical Center offers inpatient and outpatient mental health services for adults. We use a team approach to treat behavioral health conditions with collaboration from psychiatrists, clinical social workers, nurses, art therapists, psychiatric technicians and other behavioral health professionals.

Inpatient psychiatric care

Our inpatient behavioral health program is designed for people in need of short-term, acute mental healthcare. The program is completed while the patient is hospitalized and in need of 24-hour monitoring. Our behavioral health specialists focus on providing a safe environment while working through a patient's immediate problems. Then, we help develop new coping skills to continue living life in a positive, healthy manner.

Outpatient psychiatric care

West Valley offers comprehensive outpatient mental health programs, including group therapy for adults and adolescents in person and via telehealth. Our outpatient group therapies are led by licensed counselors and include weekly psychiatric appointments for medication management as well as education by a registered nurse.

Our outpatient programs include:

  • Partial hospitalization program (PHP): West Valley offers outpatient counseling services through PHP. This outpatient program is designed as a continuum of care for patients with chronic mental illness using group therapy five days a week. To qualify for outpatient mental health services, the patient must be 18 years old and older, not be a threat to themselves or others and must not be experiencing severe disruption in different areas of life. This program is also a step up for those in the community who need more frequent treatment and care.

Through PHP, patients receive an individualized treatment plan and a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation.

Our outpatient group therapy program offers many benefits to our patients, including:

  • Peer support and mental health care
  • Access to a team of mental health professionals while living at home and sleeping in your own bed
  • Support as you transition from inpatient to outpatient therapy
  • Safety, mindfulness and stability care
  • Learning new coping skills and strategies for symptom management through group therapy
